. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being the first lady of arkansas. she then became a very high profile first l
in the speech. this year the first lady's guests will include army staff sergeant clinton romashay who was awarded the medal of honor for valor in one of the deadliest battles in afghanistan. after attending the funeral of hadiya pendleton, the young chicago honor student shot dead in chicago just a week after she performed as a majorette in the president's inauguration parade in washington, d.c., just after attending the young woman's funeral this weekend, the first lady, michelle, will be hosting her mother, hadiya pendleton's mother as one of the guests for the president's speech. interestingly, a number of the democratic members of the house, democratic members of congress, i should say, both houses, have also announced that they have given tickets to the speech to relatives and friends of people who have been killed by gun violence. including relatives and friends of victims of the aurora mass shooting, aurora, colorado, and the newtown mass shooting from december, and the tucson mass shooting. former congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband will be attending as guests of her
also saw in 1995 with bill clinton and newt gingrich. and i think one dangerous thing about right now is that on both sides, people tend to be a little bit sanguine in remembering 1995. through a political lens, there may even be some democrats who say it turned out to be good for the democrats because clinton was able to position himself as a moderate, keeping the barbarians from the gate. and on the republican side they can say yes, we took some heat for being confrontational, but didn't we win both houses of congress in 1996? so i think that memory is a very dangerous thing. and it certainly isn't a break on this rush to the edge of destruction that we're seeing right now. >> because the fights are over fiscal issues and economic issues broadly speaking, i have to ask about how much of a threat to the country we are seeing and how much actual damage we are seeing inflicted. i mean republicans in particular have argued a lot about the idea of economic uncertainty. >> sure. >> that we should pursue governments in a way that we don't put too many question marks ahead of the american p
. because remember, in '95 or '96 with -- under the gingrich/dick armey congress bill clinton was able to force them to raise the minimum wage and there were those referenda you talked about. one of the key points that ought to be made and one of the reasons why older studies -- we no longer -- the minimum wage does not apply very much in manufacturing. when you are dealing with manufacturing, which is done across national lines, there could be some negative economic effect in terms of transferring out. we know people are ready to move jobs out. but overwhelmingly today, minimum wage jobs are in the service industries. if the restaurant down the street is charging a little more because of wages, you can't go to malaysia for a sandwich. and so it's food service. the supermarkets and restaurants. if you look at where the minimum wage has an effect, it is in those areas in america that are really not subject to foreign competition. because they're not making things. they are performing a service for which people need to be physically present. this is part of the test of whether or not the
to reagan and they had bill clinton host this 30-minute infomercial. and they literally packed in every democratic politician in the country for like a 20-second speech. and they had a focus group. they didn't realize at the time that talking about the focus group was political suicide. they kept saying our focus group told us this. they've tried all different formats. i've never seen one that actually pulls it off. >> i almost feel like while there are still i guess two or three more for barack obama, depending. the president doesn't always give the state of the union when he is on his way out the door. >> right. >> but if we've got more ahead for barack obama, this might be a time for them to opt out gracefully if they are going to. but then while we've still got it, there is also the political question of the republican party having chosen marco rubio as their guy. of course he is on the cover of "time" magazine as the savior. and he has been talked up that way in the republican party since even before he was sworn in, once he got elected. does he deserve it substantively? is there a
that the push on gun himself turned off a will the of voters. they shut down guns for the rest of the clinton presidency, including after columbine. then kentucky, west, virginia, states that clinton had carried before, that really reinforced the '94 percentage for democrats. it's a warning an opportunity, it's the 2014 mid terms. there's probably going to be some sort of legislative action now. i think this is a long-term thing. if can you go into the 2014 mid terms and you have the president gaejed, the democrats engaged and for instance, mayor bloomberg, if he throws himself into this financially and politically, if the message that democrats and republicans take out of 2014 is the opposite -- >> don't be on the wrong side of this -- >> right. there's momentum to really do more after 2014. >>s that fascinating. >> it could disproven this year. we'll be right back. this is for. this is for. step seven point two one two. verify and lock. command is locked. five seconds. three, two, one. standing by for capture. the most innovative software on the planet... dragon is captured. is connecting t
wore a hillary clinton mask, the other wore a giant panda suit, which freedom works had used at protests to denounce progresses as panderers. what they were acting out was not pandering but rather something else. okay. you can now uncover your children's eyes. but this is just the latest detail in the ongoing drama that is the slow unraveling over freedom works. it is also the detail of how the former chairman of the group, dick armey, stormed into the group's office with a man with a gun when he was reportedly trying to seize control of the group away from the group's president, matt kibbe. there was also dick armey accusing matt kibbe of using freedomworks' staff to write his own book while all the proceeds of the book went to him there was dick armey's letter resigning of chairman of freedomworks, demanding that the group stop using his name and likeness and his book and demanding specifically that freedomworks deliver his official dick armey portrait to his goat farm in texas. and after all of that, there was the panda suit thing with the interns. ew. over at the other na
cain and chuck hagel both supported the iraq war initially, as did people like john kerry and hillary clinton and joe biden and dianne feinstein and chuck schumer and 24 other democrats in the senate and all but one of the republicans in the senate all voted yes. and yeah, there were democrats who were against the war from the beginning. and that one republican, lincoln chaffee. but there were enough democrats who said yes and went along with it. that's part of the reason the war happened. the difference over time is that republican chuck hagel and most of the democrats who were wrong about iraq, they figured out that they were wrong and they turned against the war and ultimately they tried to end the war because it had been a mistake. we can say mistake in the technical sense here, right? the war was started to go get weapons of mass destruction from saddam and to stop saddam from helping al qaeda. well, saddam had no relationship with al qaeda that we were stopping. and saddam had no weapons of mass destruction. it was wrong. the war was factually wrong. right? we have learned that. this is
as secretary of state. john kerry, of course, will be taking over there from outgoing secretary hillary clinton. john kerry joked today that he had big heels to fill as the new secretary of state. president obama's second major nominee to face a confirmation hearing was another national security pick, the former senator chuck hagel. his confirmation hearings for defense secretary were not a breeze. the vote on his nomination has not yet happened. republicans in the senate are now hinting that they might even filibuster chuck hagel's nomination for defense, which of course sounds normal, because, you know, it seems like republicans filibuster anything now. but in fact that would not be normal that would be unprecedented if they do it. the reason republicans are even considering doing this unprecedented thing is because they cannot block chuck hagel's nomination by normal means. even though the republicans have persuaded lots of the senators on their own side to oppose his nomination, they are a minority. and they have not persuaded any democrats to oppose him at all, at least none that have come
takes all. >> they're getting ready for hillary. they know they can't beat hillary clinton so they have to do it in the best way they can. >> they don't seem too confident right now. >> no doubt. ari berman, thanks for joining us. i appreciate it. that is "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. great story you broke last night. >> thank you very much. we have a follow-up on that scoop tonight that i'm really looking forward to, ed. thanks a lot. >> it's got a lot of liberals troubled, no question about it. >> and i also think in the business that we are in, i spend a lot of time defending us from people who say that we're just like fox. there is a lot of criticism from the left from this administration who people who see themselves as principled liberals, and it's civil. that's really different than the dynamic you see on the right. and i'm real proud of that. >> no question about it. thanks. >> thanks a lot, man. thanks to you at home as well for joining us this hour. there is lots going on right now in the news, including some unexpected progress on t
, in this case it was president clinton, introduced powerful new federal laws, we ended up incarcerating black kids, kids from the west and south side of chicago, kids from towns like new orleans. there is just a little part of me that keeps being concerned that on the one hand, yes, we must push for tougher regulations. but how do we keep the regulations from falling on the backs of the very kids we're trying to protect? >> here is the point. we need a holistic approach to this. we can't just look -- it's true. i wouldn't want to get on an airport where four out of ten people didn't get checked, right? so four out of ten people don't get checked for handguns in america. so that's not the kind of way we should conduct ourselves. conversely, let's face it. we have a responsibility to have economic engines out there. because, i mean, the demand for drugs is so huge and continues to spiral out of control in this country. let's face it. there is a direct correlation. the propensity for drugs comes from the selling of drugs and the protecting of those drug turfs of which we are all involved both in
